SAPPHIRE first to announce AMD Radeon 6700 GPU without RX

SAPPHIRE quietly released the Radeon 6700, the latest addition to AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series of gaming graphics cards. The novelty is an unprecedented stripped-down version of the RX 6700 XT, which is unique in many ways, starting with its name, which sets aside the traditional “RX” branding. Another standout feature is its specs, which, for all their power, are very similar to the laptop’s RX 6700M.

SAPPHIRE Announces First Radeon 6700

as the website emphasizes Video KazThe Radeon 6700 is not only basically the same as the RX 6700M of the notebook, although it brings higher consumption, but it is also very similar to a mining card model released by SAPPHIRE during the high-encryption period. As the market stabilizes, it’s possible for the brand to leverage inventory and redistribute models for gamers.

The novelty is equipped with a Navi 22 chip, the same as the RX 6700 XT and RX 6700M, with 36 Compute Units (CUs) enabled, thus 2,304 cores and 36 ray accelerators for ray tracing. With a 2230 MHz game clock and 2495 MHz boost clock, this component provides up to 11.5 TFLOPs of computing power.

These memories reflect the special configuration of the Radeon 6700, which includes 10 GB of GDDR6 VRAM at 16 Gbps in an unconventional 160-bit interface. Bandwidth reaches 320 GB/s and is backed by 80 MB Infinity Cache for increased transfer rates. The power consumption is 220 W, provided by the 8-pin connector, which is much higher than the 135 W of the laptop version, which almost guarantees a higher frequency.

This version comes in a traditional and a Pulse version – both have dual-fan cooling systems, but the Pulse uses a larger heatsink, takes up 2.2 slots instead of just 2 like the standard model, and should offer better temperature. And less noise. The stronger boards also have the well-known red finish.

As the promotional materials suggest, the Radeon 6700 will be ready to run games at 4K and, as expected, can use AMD’s main technology. These include the FidelityFX suite and Temporal Upgrade Technology FSR 2.0, praised for its good results in the first game that implemented it, and Spatial FSR 1.0, and Radeon Super Resolution (FSR 1.0 integrated into the driver) .

Price and Availability

SAPPHIRE has yet to confirm a price or launch date, but according to rumors that correctly indicate the card’s debut and specs, the Radeon 6700 will be available next Thursday, June 9, for a reported price of €550 (~R$2,840). It is unclear whether this novelty will reach Brazil.
